Mrs. Heather McCracken
Welcome to 8th Grade! I LOVE teaching Math and I look forward to sharing my passion for Mathematics with your child. I have experience teaching Mathematics at the middle school, high school, and community college levels. I am a mom to three awesome young men (and numerous students)! I have been married to my husband for almost 20 years! When I'm not teaching, lesson planning, or chauffering my sons around I enjoy gardening and crafting.
At Highland Middle School we have high expectations of our 8th graders. Our 8th grade team puts a lot of effort to ensure that we are setting our students up for success in high school. We understand that 8th graders are creating the foundation for their future. 8th graders will have the opportunity to learn PreAlgebra skills in a collaborative learning environment. 8th graders will also have the opportunity to participate in our Winter Formal, overnight Washington, DC field trip, extra privileges not experienced in previous grades, and most importantly the 8th Grade Graduation Ceremony. With hard work and perserverance, 8th graders will definitely create a solid educational foundation and fantastic memories at HMS!
Let's go VIKINGS!
